Manchester United target Robert Muric is expected to remain at Dinamo Zagreb until the end of the season, according to their manager Zoran Mamic.
Muric is currently the subject of a dispute over the situation of his contract and United boss David Moyes is understood to be keeping a close eye on the situation.
The teenager could be available on a free transfer plus a fee in the region of £300,000 in compensation.
But Mamic, who is the club's head coach and director of sport told 24sata: "There are a lot of rumours going around regarding Muric, but we all firmly believe that he will stay at Dinamo at least until the end of the season."
The Croatian Under-17 international has also been watched by Chelsea, Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.
